We have stayed here twice, both times in chalets, once through Brittany Ferries and once through Eurocamp.
The setting is beautiful - in the grounds of a chateau. It is clean, well run and friendly.Read moreLess
"Fantastic relaxed site for families…"
We spent a week here with our 4 year old and 8 year old and it could not have been more perfect.
The site is set in the grounds of a chateau with a fishing lake which is free to use. It has a great playground for the children and 2 pools. Keycamp and eurocamp are here with tents and mobile homes. Access to local sights is good with Mont St Michel only 30 mins away as well as normandy beaches and Bayeaux tapestry within an hours drive.
The outdoor pool is opened in May and is great when its hot. The indoor pool is a centerparcs-esqe affair with a small pool and three different water slides as well as a toddler area with plenty of chairs and recliners. We spent a few hours here everyday and it is well run and clean.
The site has a shop which has an ordering facility for bread and croissants etc each morning. There is also a games room, bar and takeaway.
There is a large supermarket less than 1km away and the local village is a wonderful seaside village with a good beach and a few lovely shops.
The site was quiet in general with no big groups of teens etc. There are no kids clubs here but plenty for kids to do. The faciilties were super clean and modern. We were camping so used shower blocks etc, they were fab for a family with large shower cubicles with sink area as well as seperate toddler toilets and a baby/ todd;er porcelain bath with shower. All cleaned twice a day. The launderette was good too.
We will definitely be returning here.Read moreLess

"May 2011 (half term week), we camped in our own…"
May 2011 (half term week), we camped in our own tent, with our 5 and 7 year old children. Keycamp and Eurocamp are also on site, they have tents and there are mobile homes. Lovely campsite for young families, very attractive, built around a chateau and it's outbuildings, it had an excellent indoor swimming pool complex, nice warm outdoor pool and a good play area too, also bouncy castles up for the children, all included in the pitch price. Even though the site had a lot of vacant pitches, the pool was quite crowded towards the end of the week, which was a French public holiday, which did make me think it might be a problem at peak times in the summer holidays. The rule about men only being allowed to wear Speedos in the pool was strictly enforced.
The shop was good for essentials and you can order baguettes etc for the next morning. The bar and takeaway were fine, the food was not brilliant but perfectly adequate, mainly pizzas and things with chips, also a selection of fresh salads which were very good. All the staff were friendly and spoke English. There was no entertainment, which suited us, although there was a big TV playing sports channels in the bar and the usual bar football, plus a small room with pinball type games. The toilets were clean and warm, one block was unisex, the other that we used had mens cubicles opposite ladies so some segregation but not total The showers were very good.
The site also had a fishing lake, a tennis court, bike hire and a big empty field for playing games in. The pitches are completely or partly enclosed by low hedges. There is a big supermarket about 2 mins drive away. We would definitely consider returning.Read moreLess
